Gang of Four will be bringing some cheer to their fans with the upcoming release of a new limited edition box set at the end of the year.
Gang of Four: 77-81 will include remastered versions of Entertainment! and Solid Gold, an exclusive singles LP and a double LP of the “never officially released” Live at American Indian Center 1980. But that’s not all.
It will also contain two new badges and a C90 cassette tape “compiling 26 never-before-issued outtakes, rarities and studio demos from Entertainment! and Solid Gold.” There will also be a 100-page, full-color hardbound book that features the band’s history with never before seen photos, flyers, posters, liner notes and more.
In July, Gang of Four released a playlist of their best performances throughout the years. And earlier this year, founding member Andy Gill died, sparking tributes across the music spectrum.
